Happy Monday, everyone!

Hey, another week of the off season, and some actual football news to talk about from over the weekend, as the Vikings released a couple players. Harris and Fusco were both cut.

Per the rumor mill, the Vikings are interested in right tackle Rick Wagner.


In the Monday Morning Mailbag, Wobby wonders if there’s a starting spot for Hunter.

The Vikings are keeping 2017 season tickets at 2016 prices, per Lindsey Young. Also, SI pinpoints tackle as the Vikings biggest need. Wow, they’re sharp over there at SI, I’d have never guessed that we needed tackles, I figured we were set, especially after how well Clemmings has played.

Around the rest of the league:

From, rumors are swirling about Jimmy Garappolo and a potential trade. The Browns are surfacing as a potential partner, with a first round pick attached as price.

ESPN looks at all the places where Romo could land.

Wild update:

The Wild took on the Red Wings last night and handled them easily, 6-3 was the final tally.

We come to today’s media selection.

I like watching games from ‘09, here’s week 10 at home against the Lions.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the chitlins.
